Which Salvia, if any, will grow in the tropics, Broome... WA

Hi Joann,

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

Salvia is named for its hardiness for hot climate, so it will be suitable for Broome. Just ensure the soil is well drainage as Salvia dislike wet feet. I suggest improving soil before planting by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive. 

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
